I went home (West Somerset) for a few days this week, whilst driving I came across Cothelstone Manor - well of course I had to stop Wink

Although there has been a house on the site since 1066, when the land was granted to Sir Adam de Coveston by William the Conqueror, the present house, listed grade II*, is believed to date from the early to mid 16th century. It suffered heavily during the civil war when it was partially demolished by cannon fire in 1646. The remains were repaired and for the next 200 years it served as farmhouse. The Manor was finally restored to its former glory in 1856.

Although only 6 miles from Taunton, Cothelstone is a world away from the rush of modern life. It is a wonderful location with the 15th century church of St Thomas of Canterbury behind it, and surrounded by the Quantock hills area of outstanding natural beauty.

The Manor is in a magical setting with its many warm Quantock stone walls and its interesting and unusual features, including a fine grade 1 listed gatehouse, a late 16th century gazebo and its impressive pillared and arched entrance gates.

Thanks as always for your time
Your thoughts/comments are very welcome.

I never did like history lessons, but your narrative adds so much to the image, not that it needs anything added, it's wonderful.
